Methane Threat


The bible says that, the second time, the earth will be destroyed by fire. Maybe this is nuclear, or maybe it is this methane danger?

By 2030, it is reported that the methane will possibly explode.





Persistently High Methane Concentrations over Beaufort Sea

High methane concentrations have been showing up over Beaufort Sea over the past few days, as shown on the image below. This follows the recent high methane concentrations over the East Siberian Sea.


The persistent character of these very high methane concentrations over the Arctic Ocean indicates that methane has started to erupt from clathrates under the seabed, triggered by very warm water reaching the bottom of the Arctic Ocean.

Methane eruptions from hydrates in sediments under the Arctic Ocean helped mean methane levels reach new records, with mean global methane readings as high as 1835 parts per billion recorded at several altitudes on August 17, 2014.


The very high sea surface temperature anomalies that show up on above image give an idea of the inflow of warm water from the Pacific Ocean through the Bering Strait. This is further highlighted by the combination image below.

The situation is dire and calls for comprehensive and effective action, as discussed at the Climate Plan blog.

Total Extinction Level Events by the numbers
Chernobyl – B/P oil disaster – Fukushima
Arctic Methane Threat…

People died—and are still dying—from Chernobyl
Chernobyl burned for 10 days and cumulatively harmed millions worldwide
Chernobyl is far from over
Untold hundreds of thousands will yet die
The B/P Oil disaster effectively killed the Gulf, and stopped the Atlantic current
The Gulf coast should be evacuated. Many will die anyway
Mortality and morbidity from Fukushima will surpass those of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl and the B/P oil disaster combined, by several orders of magnitude

Fukushima released between 600 to 6000 pounds of plutonium, while Chernobyl released hardly any
Fukushima radiation levels went up to 180,000,000 Bq/m³ per cubic meter of ocean water. The highest ever recorded ocean water radiation level in history was only 1,000 Bq. per cubic meter, after 2,400 open air nuclear bomb tests and the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown.

Event Peak Radiation Reading In Bq/m³
2,400 Nuclear weapons testing peak – 100 Bq/m³
Chernobyl caused a peak reading of – 1,000 Bq/m³
Fukushima caused a peak reading of – 180,000,000 Bq/m³
Corium water continues to flow into the sea at 60 billion becquerels a day



Chernobyl was around ten times worse than 2,400 nuclear bombs going off.

Fukushima was around 180,000 times worse than 2,400 nuclear bombs going off.

May of 2012: The Wall Street Journal reported on a Stanford University study. Daniel Madigan, a marine ecologist who led the study, was quoted as saying, "The tuna packaged it up (the radiation) and brought it across the world’s largest ocean. We were definitely surprised to see it at all and even more surprised to see it in every one we measured."

Another member of the study group, Marine biologist Nicholas Fisher at Stony Brook University in New York State reported, "We found that absolutely every one of them had comparable concentrations of cesium 134 and cesium 137."

Every blue fin tuna tested in the waters off California has shown to be contaminated with radiation that originated in Fukushima. Every single one.

"It’s all physics now" Nothing can stop this. It was just a matter of time to reach a tipping tipping point, and that point is long past
(PBq = petabecquerel = quadrillion becquerels)
1 PBq = 1.0 × 10+15 Bq
Wait… It get’s better

There are about 5 gigatons of methane in the earth’s atmosphere
There are thousands of gigatons of frozen methane under Actic sea ice and permafrost

The Arctic is warming. The Navy predicts that all arctic sea ice will be gone by 2016. Ice reflects heat, water absorbs heat; thereby accelerating warming.

Glaciers are retreating 10x as fast as a decade ago
Methane releasing from the Siberian Laptev Siberian sea is more than the rest of the world combined. It’s estimated that there are approximately 2500 gigatons of methane hydrate in the Laptev sea alone

2500gt x 20 = 50,000 Tsar bombas@50 megatons each
(one billion tons = gigaton)

One Tsar bomba nuclear bomb = 1/20th of a gigaton
Just a 5 gigaton release would destroy the earth habitat, and all life on land and in seas

Scientists say that a 50 gigaton "methane burp" can and will happen at any time
50gt x 20 = 1,000 Tsar Bombas@50 megatons each
28 self sustaining warming feedback loops were activated from 2010 that cannot be reversed per Dr. Guy Mcpherson
The global grid will go down at any time

The 435 known global reactors will go Fukushima critical. 




Methane will kill everything if ionizing radiation doesn’t.

Dr. Guy McPherson states that we are looking at near term extinction by 2030

This is what "they" have been hiding. "They" are scared.

This explains the underground bases, chemtrails, the Arctic seed vault, FEMA camps, coffins, Bermuda triangle, govt food storage. govt ammo purchases, etc

Everything else is a distraction. This will soon go viral 
This is going to happen folks. It’s all over. We’re done! 
Likely all life extinction by 2030 as Dr. Guy McPherson predicts

Jesus fundamentally must return before this happens



Shock as retreat of Arctic sea ice releases deadly greenhouse gas

Russian research team astonished after finding ‘fountains’ of methane bubbling to surface


Dramatic and unprecedented plumes of methane – a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide – have been seen bubbling to the surface of the Arctic Ocean by scientists undertaking an extensive survey of the region.

The scale and volume of the methane release has astonished the head of the Russian research team who has been surveying the seabed of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf off northern Russia for nearly 20 years.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent, Igor Semiletov, of the Far Eastern branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said that he has never before witnessed the scale and force of the methane being released from beneath the Arctic seabed.

"Earlier we found torch-like structures like this but they were only tens of metres in diameter. This is the first time that we’ve found continuous, powerful and impressive seeping structures, more than 1,000 metres in diameter. It’s amazing," Dr Semiletov said. "I was most impressed by the sheer scale and high density of the plumes. Over a relatively small area we found more than 100, but over a wider area there should be thousands of them."

Scientists estimate that there are hundreds of millions of tonnes of methane gas locked away beneath the Arctic permafrost, which extends from the mainland into the seabed of the relatively shallow sea of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf.

One of the greatest fears is that with the disappearance of the Arctic sea-ice in summer, and rapidly rising temperatures across the entire region, which are already melting the Siberian permafrost, the trapped methane could be suddenly released into the atmosphere leading to rapid and severe climate change.

Dr Semiletov’s team published a study in 2010 estimating that the methane emissions from this region were about eight million tonnes a year, but the latest expedition suggests this is a significant underestimate of the phenomenon.

Barring anything else, methane will cause a near term global extinction within

our lifetime.  Certainly within our kids lifetimes.  This is bad 

DOOMSDAY 2020 – Arctic Methane Melting NOW

A more conservative view:


How much methane came out of that hole in Siberia?

Siberia has explosion holes in it that smell like methane, and there are newly found bubbles of methane in the Arctic Ocean. As a result, journalists are contacting me assuming that the Arctic Methane Apocalypse has begun. However, as a climate scientist I remain much more concerned about the fossil fuel industry than I am about Arctic methane.

Short answer: It would take about 20,000,000 such eruptions within a few years to generate the standard Arctic Methane Apocalypse that people have been talking about. Here’s where that statement comes from:

How much methane emission is “a lot”? The yardstick here comes from Natalie Shakhova, an Arctic methane oceanographer and modeler at the University of Fairbanks.

She proposed that 50 Gton of methane (a gigaton is 1015 grams) might erupt from the Arctic on a short time scale Shakhova (2010). Let’s call this a “Shakhova” event. There would be significant short-term climate disruption from a Shakhova event, with economic consequences explored by Whiteman et al Whiteman et al (2013).

The radiative forcing right after the release would be similar to that from fossil fuel CO2 by the end of the century, but subsiding quickly rather than continuing to grow as business-as-usual CO2 does.

I and others have been skeptical of the possibility that so much methane could escape from the Arctic so quickly, given the century to millennial time scale of warming the permafrost and ocean sediments, and point out that if the carbon is released slowly, the climate impacts will be small. But now that explosion holes are being found in Siberia, the question is

How much methane came out of that hole in Siberia? The hole is about 80 meters in diameter and 60-100 meters deep.


It’s hard to say exactly how much methane did this, because perhaps the crater allowed methane to be released from the surrounding soil.

There may be emissions in the future from permafrost melting laterally from the sides of the hole. But for a start let’s assume that the volume of the hole is the same as the volume of the original, now escaped, bubble.

Gases are compressible, so we need to know what its pressure was. The deeper in the Earth it was, the higher the pressure, but if we are concerned about gas whose release might be triggered by climate warming, we should look for pockets that come close to the surface.

Deep pockets might take thousands of years for surface warming to reach. The mass of a solid cap ten meters thick would increase the pressure underneath it to about four atmospheres, plus there may have been some overpressure.

Let’s assume a pressure of ten atmospheres (enough to hold up the atmosphere plus about 30 meters of rock).

If the bubble was pure methane, it would have contained about … wait for it … 0.000003 Gtons of methane.

In other words, building a Shakhova event from these explosions would take approximately 20,000,000 explosions, all within a few years, or else the climate impact of the methane would be muted by the lifetime effect.

What about the bubbles of methane they just found in the Arctic ocean?

There were reports this summer of a new expedition to the Siberian margin, documenting vast plumes of methane bubbles rising from sediments ~500 meters water depth.


It is certainly believable that warming ocean waters could trigger an increase in methane emissions to the atmosphere, and that the time scale for changing ocean temperatures can be fast due to circulation changes (we are seeing the same thing in the Antarctic).

But the time scale for heat to diffuse into the sediment, where methane hydrate can be found, should be slow, like that for permafrost on land or slower.

More importantly, the atmospheric methane flux from the Arctic Ocean is really small (extrapolating estimates from Kort et al 2012), even compared with emissions from the Arctic land surface, which is itself only a few percent of global emissions (dominated by human sources and tropical wetlands).

In conclusion, despite recent explosions suggesting the contrary, I still feel that the future of Earth’s climate in this century and beyond will be determined mostly by the fossil fuel industry, and not by Arctic methane. We should keep our eyes on the ball.

What is the real threat?

And how does this methane relate end time events?

59 Responses to “Methane Threat”

  1. Eruption at Iceland volcano triggers ‘red’ alert

    will this release methane as well as ash?

    • The Iceland volcano is definitely disturbing. This volcano is yet another self-reinforcing feedback loop for global warming; as is any and every other volcano.

      Personally, I think that Dr. Guy McPhersons prediction of total near term extinction by 2030 is correct, for temporal as well as Biblical reasons.

      — 6,000 years is about up
      — Most prophecy has been fulfilled.
      — Revelation 11:18 is obviously happening right now.
      — Revelation 11:19 has already happened, and likely will again.

  2. Tectonics will definitely play a role in the methane equation, for obvious reasons.

    • Beware of sources that would diminish this methane threat.

      One gigaton is equal to a billion metric tons


      How many megatons per gigaton?

      1 Gt = 1 billion tons (1,000,000,000 tons TNT potential)
      1 Mt = 1 million tons (1,000,000 tons TNT potential)


      1 gigaton is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 grams

      More perspective;

      Energy release by the numbers:

      One bomb twice the size of Tsar Bomba would yield
      approximately 100MT’s[mega tons TNT].

      It would produce a fireball 10 miles in diameter. The fireball alone would reach 10 miles high, 50-60K/ft; not counting mushroom cloud.

      A one gigaton bomb(20 Tsar Bombas) would have a fireball 200 miles in diameter; well past the orbits of most space missions by 100-150 miles, and be an extinction level event in and of itself, eventually

      A 50GT bomb exploded above ground would have a fireball 50 x 200 = 10,000 miles in diameter. If exploded beneath the ground, it could blow a chunk of earth the size of Texas far out into space, and would boil off 1/4 to 1/3 of the ocean. A virtual immediate extinction level event.

      Such is the energy that lay dormant under water and ice–for now!

    • what do you think about the asteroid predicting to hit the Caribbean sea and cause a 12.0 earthquake?

      that would definitely cause methane explosions.

      I was told it would happen this year…..?

  3. Oh my!

    I smell something?

    “Cows seem to be spewing twice the methane that scientists previously thought, Michalak said.

    While burps and flatulence are part of the methane emission from cattle, University of California Santa Barbara professor Ira Leifer said a bigger factor is manure.

    ‘If you shovel it into an artificial lagoon you are creating the perfect production for methane, but it cuts down on the smell and your neighbors complain less,’ he said.”


    • dj

      this post is not about cows.

      it is about natural methane reserves under the earth….including layers that are close to the top of the ground

      • I know – this is just another discussion page. So here is Scriptures, telling us what we know occurs – by fire to those who do not Believe.

        “…the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.

        But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 4, ESV).

        If I’m in Texas, OK, or KS – I do not fear methane gas. God will save His anointed, amen.

        Psalm 103

  4. Dan,

    Some folks think Rev. 8:8-11 is a real comet or “star” falling into the sea.


    For an alternative interpretation and a more spiritual perspective to the literal/secular view – pun intended – please read the attached link.

    Could there be an asteroid falling – sure. You are correct – it would need to be the perfect size.

    But the clue on the Wormwood (Rev. 8:11) is within Scriptures.

    CS Lewis also had an idea about Wormwood when CS wrote about letters between 2 demons. Clue.

    Psalm 103

  5. God sends us signals and warnings, and in our day of 24 hour news cycles the warning is soon forgotten and we are on to the next thing the news is focused on.

    People here in Northern California are still waking up to a 6.1 earth quake that hit this morning about 3:20am PST, which fortunately was very limited in scope. Basically Napa was ground zero (American Canyon) with Napa County, Solano County, and Sonoma County taking the brunt of it. Roads are buckled, gas and water lines are broken, chimneys and roofs fell and collapsed, mobile homes off their foundation. About 100 injured, 3 critical.

    My point is, how many are prepared? Soon, this quake, too, will be forgotten and people will go about their lives. How many will take the time to be ready for the next, bigger, one?

    However this world comes to an end, whether it is methane, a solar storm, another quake, or another bomb dropped – how many of us are prepared and ready, not just here on this plane, but are ready to meet the Lord and stand in judgement?

    How many?

  6. The sign of the times hits us daily, especially those who believe in the Word of God and connect written prophesy fulfilled all around us.
    For me, at times each day and prophesy can become overwhelming.

    I turn my heart, soul, and mind to my Redeeming Savior; the Peace passing All understanding fills my being.

    HE will never leave or forsake.
    Whatever each of us is destined to endure, we have this promise and over 7,000 other promises personally to claim.
    Certainly exciting times we live in.
    Folks who have not any hope best turn to Almighty God through HIS Son; time is running out.
    Tick, tock…

  7. 1000 yrs = 1 day, yes can be interpreted as The Father’s Eternal ‘time’ is far diff than our finite existence…. but as in case of most, if not all Scripture
    a deeper meaning/interpretation can be realized…
    take 1000 yrs and divide by 24 (hrs in a day) and u get each eternal ‘hour’ is equivalent to 41.66666666666667 earth yrs and taking it all the way to seconds level 1 sec in heaven is 3-4 days on earth…. so literally we r speeding to a final climactic Day of Reckoning….
    Another passage that many refuse to look at much less understand is Jesus saying no one – including Angels, Himself, man, woman ‘animals implied’ knows the Day or Hour The 2nd Coming will occur… There r a platitude of levels that this recorded prophecy covers. The MOST obvious is what any Military Officer knows, that is u never ever want the enemy to know the date-time of the attack…
    Thus ONLY the General of Generals -The Supreme Ruler of all Creation -God The Father knows when this Death blow against Evil-Satan and His Followers will come….The Devil knows it is futile to have that info -he chooses rather NOT to believe The God-Head is capable of destroying his kingdom being guided-by and full of evil (all that opposes Elohim)…

    Suffice it to say -as Scripture testifies there will be many scoffers and scorners claiming there will not be such an event any-time soon as its the same today as b/4 and will continue (twisting the Words of The Holy Spirit and presuming God’s Grace will supercede any Judgement predicted in HIS WORD -another perversion of Christ’s & Holy Spirits meaning of those powerful Words spoke to His Apostles,disciples/followers 2000 yrs ago or as HE sees from/thru Heavens prism 2days….

    Maranatha, Praise God the Father -His Son Christ Jesus and His Holy Spirit. Pray for the Peace of Israel/Jerusalem Hallelujiah…. and for the un-believing souls yet to believe in this Age -We(the Church) pray that the
    Holy Spirit will quicken the hearts,minds,bodies and spirits of men and women enlightening them to the ETERNAL TRUTHs of Christ Salvation and HIS GLORIUS GRACE……Selah/Amen…..

  8. methane threat east coast of america

    • Saw this. Like I said, this is likely going to go viral. Review your exit strategy

      • there is really no where to go.. the explosions will ignite natural gas basins, which are all over….

        you can try using the map on the link as a guide if you are in USA…otherwise, check one for your country

        • I’m more worried about the rapid temperature rise, secondary to methane’s 20x-100x >greenhouse gas effect than CO2. Further, this methane threat is just the kind of thing that would usher in panic that would cause as many as would, to accept the Mark of the Beast, in the vain attempt to appease the God they perceive, to avoid the apparent inevitable.

          Explosions certainly could happen if methane were concentrated enough.

          It will definitely be interesting if and when general awareness of this threat builds. And of course, it’s more a matter of when, not if.

          By extra food ASAP. Inventory proximal friends and network with them asap. Societal collapse to whatever degree, is imminent.

          • if it is a slow leak, as a gas, it would just ascend to the upper atmosphere and space…and may be less of a threat than something that sticks around

            • Given that methane is a compound and subject to gravity, and that there are tens of thousands of gigatons of trapped methane compared to the claimed 5 gigatons that exists in the atmosphere already, confidence is high that a methane canopy double what we now have, is a no-brainer!

              I’m convinced that Guy McPherson is correct when he states that the positive feedback loops will cause out-gassing to escalate multiplicatively; possibly exponentially. Given facts already in evidence, it’s reasonable to conclude that it could happen just like that.

              Again, this would explain cgov’t food and ammo hoardinghemtrails, the Bermuda triangle and other like anomalies, Svalbard, Rex 84, Fema camps, plastic coffins, D.U.M.B.s, guidestones, population reduction, you name it.

              This reality, when it actualizes, will cause men to harm one another just for a bit more time drawing breath. It all makes sense.

  9. Great post Marianne,
    It all makes sense now. We have spent these past few years trying to figure it all out but now the Lord has revealed so much. I thank the Lord for all the gifted people who put all of these circumstances together…this IS the last generation. We must be about our Father’s business more and more with every breath we take. Blessings & peace to all as we know it all ends with God victorious!! Amen

    • Correct. I’m 60y/o, and I’m likely gonna see the end, barring earlier death.

      I cry for my son regularly


  11. Satellite Data Shows U.S. Methane ‘Hot Spot’ Bigger than Expected
    Methane emissions from the Four Corners region of the United States


  12. When the wind blows just right – we can smell the cattle in Nebraska and Kansas here in Iowa.

    Or maybe we’re smellimg our hogs?

  13. Denise,

    If the cow bs don’t kill you – Ebola or mass terror or a weapon of mass destruction will says the Fed Gov.

    Could “they” be preparing for the 4th seal,

    “And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.”

    “This is a simulated exercise designed to test our capabilities and respond to a pandemic or biological threat,” he said. “ … We’re trying to identify some areas where we can improve and we’re also trying to foster some confidence in the population that we serve … that we can respond effectively to a mass terror or a weapon of mass destruction incident.”

    “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast” (Isaiah 26:20).

    Rev 12:11

  14. This methane threat awareness is now approaching viral. My observations have revealed to me that the threat and magnitude of possible/probable global catastrophe is too much reality for the average Joe.

    If reservoirs of methane and methane hydrate are what experts state do exist, and there is no hint that they are lying about this, we here on earth are in for a world of hurt.

    We indeed are facing real extinction level events


  15. Deu 4:24
    For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

    Heb 12:29
    For our God is a consuming fire.

    In 2 Ezdres of the Apocrypha, it states in there that when Christ comes back He will open his mouth and a flame will consume all.

  16. I think that this was a methane event

    • you may be right…I see no other explanation out in the middle of the ocean

      • This was reported near the Kamchatka peninsula, which is roughly in the same latitude as Alaska. Frozen methane is indicated there. There are volcanoes in that region.

  17. Isn’t it interesting that the Pope is addressing climate change this September

  18. california

  19. residents told to leave due to methane leak

  20. You might wanna review this video, then research others that are associated with The Arctic methane emergency. Methane apocalypse is the likeliest scenario

    • interesting video. I had not thought of the H2S bacteria.

      • H2S bacteria has already happened. Some regions, like the west coast, have experienced “purple tides”, indicative of such bacteria.

        Oceans already have “dead zones”.

        Greater than 90% of pelagic ocean fish are gone! Dead!

        Fukushima is an extinction level event in and of itself, given enough time. If and when increased atmospheric methane causes disruption and elevated temperatures that cause the over 450 global nuclear reactors to go critical, ionizing radiation will kill everything on the planet, even without total methane release.

        Again, just a fractional release of methane is an extinction level event. 50 gigatons would do it, and there are thousands of gigatons methane hydrate stores. It’s thought that at least 30 self reinforcing positive feedback loops contributing to warming and subsequent methane release, have already been triggered since about 2009. If true, a cascade is already happening, and will likely soon be self evident.

        Sometimes I don’t even know what to tell people.

        Guy McPherson sought counseling regarding his perception of the reality of near term extinction within his lifetime. Whether he was right or not, things are looking ominous.

        Most sounding the global warming alarm, base their conclusions on an evolutionary timeline instead of a Biblical timeline. A Biblical timeline likely paints a worse scenario. Just sayin…

        It might be wise to grab the Bible and cram for the final.

        • dan

          I don’t know what to day. just that I wish you were not in CA

          • I fear that very soon, it’s not going to much matter where one is located. If this methane threat is true, and it’s looking like it is, when it becomes apparent to all, it will be too late for goodbyes.

            Again, if the data is true, what has been predicted will happen as an accelerating cascade, and likely at an exponential rate.

            World “leaders”, and I use the term “leaders” loosely, must know about this. Of course, the Bible says that they will be sent strong delusion. Perhaps why “they” are using Chemtrails in an attempt to increase the albedo effect, and to reduce population. Killing two birds with one stone if you will.

            Some ask, why reduce population? Because “they” believe that too many people generate too many British thermal Units(BTU’s), and thus increases global warming.

            Trouble is, they shot themselves in the foot, because methane release was going to happen anyway. The only hope is Jesus
